EDRO Made Wide Bunka Saya 180mm saya. North American poplar wood, ebony pin included. The Wide sized saya measure 4.5mm at the spine and are designed to fit thicker hand forged Japanese handled knives. They may run a little big for certain knives and certainly bigger than a factory made western handled knife. If purchased with a knife at the same time, we will drill and fit the pin, as well as do any extra carving if the tang is extra thick.
**Please be advised that saya are only guaranteed to fit the knife purchased in order. Otherwise all sales are final and no exchanges will be given on saya purchases. Sayas purchased without knife will be sent with the pin and un-drilled.**
EDRO Made is based in Portland, OR. Founder Ed Ross spent years as a chef working with Japanese cuisine and culture. He started making saya covers and knife handles for friends in the food industry and developed a passion for woodworking. Built to last, EDRO made saya have thick walls and ample material top to bottom. The medium density of Poplar and Maple wood offers superior edge protection as well as optimal moisture control, important features for carbon knives. All the wood is sourced 100% from North America, and no chemicals or dyes are used.
